In HAVEN, San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli survives a vicious attack by her vampire family’s longtime archenemies. Several weeks later, as she struggles with PTSD and survivor’s guilt, supervillain Dixon resurfaces and kidnaps two of her best friends. To save them, Carina must comply with the evil bastard’s unusual demands. The kicker? She must tell no one what she is up to.

Meanwhile, she has a new dance club to open for the preternatural community, a fated soul mate acting secretive and distant, and a sexy, new, undead friend who’d love to take Alexander’s place in her heart and bed.

Blackmailed, betrayed, tempted…sometimes destiny has a wicked sense of humor.

excerpt

My attacker pinned me face-first to the trunk, grinding an erection into my backside. Panic and pain pierced my gut. Oh, hell no. I struggled to free myself, my power eager to fry the bastard. But a familiar wintery power slid under my skin and doused my fire as if it were a weak matchstick.

Warm breath teased my earlobe. “Hello, pet.”

I froze. Fuck me. Dixon.

He nipped my ear lobe with wicked sharp fangs. “Miss me?”

No.” The cut stung. Blood trickled, warm and wet, down my neck.

No? I’m hurt.” Jolts of icy power secured me to the tree trunk while Dixon’s skeletal hands roamed over my body.

Back off, you undead wanker,” I snapped, refusing to surrender to my fears.

He chuckled. “I do so love it when you speak my language, my little kitten.”

The world spun when he flipped me around and lassoed me tighter to the trunk with his power, his lean, tall body caging mine. Head lowered, gaunt face too close, his silver eyes shone like moonlight. Mesmerizing, seductive moonlight.

Shit. He was trying to compel me. Very few vampires could do that, and they had to be old. Unfortunately, Dixon was as old as Stonehenge. Maybe older.

I lowered my gaze to his thin, blue-black lips. They curled up in a creepy smile under my inspection, crinkling the lightning bolt tattoo streaking across one hollow cheek. He circled one long fang with the tip of his tongue. “Come now, pet. No more words for your favorite admirer?”

Anger almost had me hurling insults at the bastard but I clenched my teeth. You’re bat shit crazy, and I’m going to kill you if I can get my hands free.

He slipped a bony finger under my chin and tilted it upward, trapping my gaze again. I met his challenge for two whole seconds before pain closed my eyes. He’d likely dislocated my shoulder with his aerial stunt, and so far my vampire quick healing genes had failed to fix it.

Oh dear, is my favorite toy broken?” He poked my shoulder hard, chuckling when I cried out.

Bastard.” Moisture beaded on my forehead, and nausea knotted my stomach. I should puke on the smug jerk. That would teach him.

Here my pet, let me help.”

Don’t touch—”

Pain clogged my throat as he reset my shoulder with surprising medical precision.

He slid his hand over my repaired shoulder and down to the curve of my waist. “There, all better now.” His hand inched lower and squeezed my ass.

Back off, perv.”

Hm. Still spicy I see. Very good.”

He leaned into me until his erection pressed against my belly. Inside my power paced like a caged tiger, roaring and swiping at the metaphorical bars Dixon had placed around her. God, how I wanted to grab his head and fry him, starting with his too-perfect, spiky platinum hair, then his tattooed face and on down until he was nothing but an ash statue standing in his studded leather boots.

My anger surged. I bucked against his hold, hating his gaunt body plastered to mine, his cigarettes and leather scent searing my nostrils, just…hating him.

He trapped my arms above my head and rubbed his cheek against my forehead. “Yes, move like that kitten. Right there.” He lapped at my bleeding ear. “Don’t stop now, my lush little pet.”

Bile burned my throat, making a bid for freedom. “Screw you.”

Oh, yes. Quite soon in fact.”

Panic ripped my gut. “Never.”

Forever,” he shot back.

review2

I received this book and without my knowing its the second book in the Tranquilli Bloodline series, I myself am a bit neurotic on reading series all the way through and as i didn’t with this book i found it hard to really get in to, i really advised you read the first book haven before reading this one to get the full effect of the series,

Carina or (Rina) Tranquilli is very much still coming to terms with finding out she’s half vampire, and even more so that she has recently been close to being killed by the evil Dixon. Now PTSD is a part of her life, complete with Really bad anxiety attacks.

Then Dixon blackmails her into having to drink magic tainted blood over a several day period, or he will kill them, her friends, her life is pretty much turning into hell. and the icing on the cake her soul mate, Alexander, has been ordered to Europe by Tessa, until Carina can learn to control her powers when she’s around him. Tessa is one of the most powerful vampires in all of existence,

I really enjoyed Carina’s character. Carina has sarcasm and wit in droves which i really liked. She is also very loyal to her friends, almost to the point of causing herself harm. She’s twenty something, very rich and stunningly beautiful, a vampire princess, and very much in love with her soul mate Alexander.when Alexander becomes very distant towards her, Carina is really worried and wondering what’s going on. Especially When pictures of him hit the internet,

All of the characters from the previous book are back so i gather from searching the internet, but with a few added new characters,

Dixon the Big Baddy of the book wow o wow he is a cruel heartless person who myself i wanted to slap quite a few times 🙂

I think this book was well written, with good main characters, and im sure fans will not be disappointed with the rest of the series.

In my personal opinion its not the type of book or series for me personally but dont let that put you off, On the plus side this series has plenty of potential for others and fans of Celia Breslin

This is a book for the more mature of readers
